About Church Community Housing Corporation
Our Origin, Our Name
CCHC, a non-profit organization, began in 1969 when local citizens, many from the area church community, met to address the lack of decent and affordable housing in Newport County. From that origin came our name, Church Community Housing Corporation.
In the years since, CCHC has developed over 900 homes, rehabilitated another 1,500 and has integrated neighborhood revitalization, energy efficiency and ecologically conscious building materials into our developments.
CCHC strives to create homes that meet the particular needs of Newport County citizens from specialized housing that allows seniors to "age in place" to homes that allow local artists the opportunity to afford spaces to live and work. Moreover, CCHC works to create opportunities for home ownership and home maintenance through home buyer training, down payment assistance and low interest home repair loans.
